The BIG EAST Conference named Xavier women's tennis star Sydney Liggins the BIG EAST Player of the Year on Thursday. 

Liggins, a junior, was joined on the All-BIG EAST team with two of her teammates, junior Cristina Di Lorenzo and Kings grad sophomore Amina Ismail.

Liggins is the first Xavier women's tennis player to be named the BIG EAST Conference Player of the Year. She led the Musketeers in their BIG EAST Championship title run by going undefeated in singles and doubles.

Matthews and his staff were named BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year. Matthews led Xavier to a 20-5 overall record, followed by their first BIG EAST Championship and first NCAA Championship berth in program history.
